It's not just about the property.


It's about the process, the lifestyle, the neighborhood, the government, the ecology, the geography....

From "How to Buy Property in Paradise Without Ending up in Hell" to "Sloths. Really?" we have a map and articles that will entertain and inform you. And we are standing by to answer your specific questions.

We have some listings to tempt you. 


The listings on this site are a selected sample. Since there is no MLS in Costa Rica, finding the best options can be a challenge. 

So what's the best way for you to find properties? Tell me what you're hoping for. I'll search the best websites, talk to agents, tromp through jungle, climb mountains, and swim waterfalls, just for you.

It takes a team. We have one.


You might need a surveyor, an escrow company, an attorney, a home inspector, an architect, a builder, a translator. It takes time to create a strong network of professionals, so I'll happily recommend mine.

Listening to the wrong people can cost you a bundle. My team is the right people.

International living is me. I grew up in the Peruvian jungle, ran a training center in Mexico, directed a cooperative university program in Indonesia, and have now been in Costa Rica almost 6 years. That's why, for me, "real estate" is about far more than houses and land. It's about a lifestyle of adventure, discovery,  and cultural exploration in a new world.  "Home" is just where we enjoy drinks and a good meal with friends, then sleep soundly at the end of an interesting day.
